Madison, Marx, and Darwin
« on: July 31, 2012, 12:27:38 PM »
The purpose of this work is to describe the theoretical distinctions between James Madi-son’s and Karl Marx’s ideas concerning the organizations of societies. The author suggests that it is important to examine and compare these fundamentally-contrasting philosophies to each other because they are potent influences upon the direction and methods of the laws and regulations that are utilized by our American culture. Evolutionary theory will be used as a scale of metrics to analyze which school of thought provides the most favorable adaptive methods and procedures for the functions of a modern industrialized society.
It might seem strange — and perhaps even bold — to assert that Marx’s communist-socialist doctrines are manifest in our country. However, recent political events, such as the 2008 election of Barack Obama to the presidency and the concurrent election of an overwhelmingly Democrat-Party Congress, have brought these matters to the fore. The American public, for the first two years of that administration, experienced the firm grip of a single-party government. In the name of liberalism and/or progressivism that government introduced and imposed upon our society certain laws, programs and regulations that bear a distinct resemblance to Marx’s pro-posals that originated more than a hundred and fifty years ago in an evolving post-feudal Europe. For example: Government direction of manufacturing and government direction and control of the financial system, banking, mortgages, personal loans, student loans, etc. These activities bear a striking similarity to the principal tenet of socialist-communist philosophy, which is centralized control of an economy by — as Marx and his collaborator, Friedrich Engels, proposed —controlling the means of production by establishing, “centralization of credit in the hands of the state.”  In this essay, I shall examine Marx’s ideas about why his system requires these condi-tions; but it is important to note that, at the present time his ideas are assessed sympathetically and/or considered valid by certain segments of the American community, including a majority of the media and entertainment industry, an influential proportion of academics and some leaders and members of the Democrat Party. The presences of these latent conditions and the fact that a majority of Americans is unfamiliar with socialist-communist theories have generated the need to review these philosophies.
